Format: Kindle Edition
Bottles and Pots is a collection of nineteen dark tales, ranging from dastardly deeds committed in past centuries to modern crimes of passion. It’s a pleasing, entertaining, and varied mixture. The longest story is a traditional detective story, but none of the other eighteen is remotely like it. There are tales of stalking, revenge killings, bloody accidents, and sibling rivalry. We are even treated to a thumbnail sketch of a harmless perversion, as well as a humorous tale from beyond the grave. Several stories focus on the thoughts of disturbed individuals and the reactions provoked in them by the pain of loss.
There is blood and murder aplenty here if that’s what you’re looking for. But the main strength of the book lies in the skilful way in which the author shows how any one of us, however “normal” we think we are, may be pushed by circumstance into doing unspeakable acts. Warmly recommended.

Jacqueline's newest book is a short story collection of dark tales. It includes flash pieces, as well as longer stories. Some are poignant and thought-provoking, others full of twisted actions and thoughts. I enjoyed this collection but, of course I did have favourites! "Coming To Terms" - a tale of loss, "Cobwebs" - a story of bitter love and retribution, and "The Yellow Satchel" - of twisted love and too-late realisation, were three stories I particularly enjoyed. "The Game" also features in this collection and is a great read. In fact, there are more than just the four stories I've mentioned which resonate in the mind. Bottles and Pots is an interesting mix of stories that remain with the reader after the close of the page.

Funerals, executions, serial killers, and inventive ways of taking revenge; Jacqueline Pye's short story collection is darkly entertaining. As with any collection, some stories I connected to more than others; amongst my favourites are the historical fiction pieces, 'St Anselm's Day' and 'The Stones, The Stones', both of which evoke a solid sense of place and past perspectives, and 'The Yellow Satchel' stands out for its sense of mystery and poignant ending. Overall, though, I preferred the flash-fictions, as this is where the language is at its tautest and, for me, where the sinister implications reverberated for the longest time. A very good debut. Recommended.

I have the pleasure of knowing Jacqueline Pye and she is a very talented writer. But even with this knowledge I was not prepared for the brilliance of her book Bottles and Pots. This has stories from the dark side and I was mesmerized by the talent shown here. Not a fan of the macabre myself I was none-the-less drawn to these stories because of the sheer unpredictability of the endings. They shook me rigid because I simply didn't expect to see what I was in fact reading. I have no hesitation whatever in recommending this book to anyone who likes to be both frightened and enthralled at one and the same time. Well done Jacqueline, this book is a credit to you.
